Well it's funny when we go thru our stash what lands on our desks last week Halloween ... I honestly don't know why but I found some stash and had to play with it started a couple projects just have to finish them all up, I know Halloween is so far away but I love it and we are moving next month and we finally get to unpack our locker ... 1 year and 1 month later it's a corner gas time capsule lol so I get some stash that's been packed and the rest of our house out YAHH!!! It's going to be very freaky to have all our stuff back after so long living without it ... Humm Perhaps a garage sale, now that we have a driveway and who knows what the old owners of the house leave behind in it. I don't even know where my little space will be seeing we will be living in renovations for along time. I hope to carve a little space out somewhere. So I can go and hide
On to my floor desk
A Christmas card I'm working on don't know if it needs anything else but it's a work in progress, Thinking of trying to emboss some paper snowflakes that is my embossing pad
My sister made it for me for Xmas LOVE IT !!! and so easy to make
1 Sheet Fun Foam, 1 piece cardboard, that non slip mat and it's all taped together
BRILLIANT I can emboss little flowers and make them look all fancy :)
Picture of the Underside so you know what I mean about that non slip mat thing
New Quickutz Dies I just got in the mail today Must play with them soon!!!
Check out everyone Else's space at Julia's
For those of you who left comments on all 3 WOYWW posts each counts as an entry !!!

Still waiting from some in the post to arrive will post them up when they show up !!
 Also this is an early BD present it's on the 28th but there was a sale on these guys and I've been wanting one for soooo long and so I treated myself to a new BigKick it's time to retire the old Red original machine and find it a new home with someone just starting out to play with dies. This is just such a treat as some of my dies wouldn't work with the original one and now they all work. They just don't like to be pressed down on. This is so much easier too wow why did I wait so long !!!

Well I haven't been this busy for this week been out enjoying our nice weather, I did recieve 5 ATC's back so far so exciting to see what everyone has created The mail between the UK/England and Canada always surprizes me I find it super fast It' takes about a week to get between us now if I mail something to the states don't ask me why but it takes about 3 weeks ??? strange huh.

I did manage to visit 100 blogs last week ... WOW was that along list I'd like to say I remember when there was only 35 of us showing off our spaces those where the easy days to travel around. I also was so tickled pink to have seen my little buttons everywhere so kewl I must admit thanks for showing them off and having fun with them.
So here's one a new one for everyone :)
So On my desk is  ATC's from Julia,Neet, Claire and her sexy one. Helen and BJ thank you all so loving them all and can't wait for the rest of them to show up in the post. I see 2 pairs of scissors and little peak of my ribbon boxes and 6 by 6 papers too
 Oh and here's a link to find out about the talking tag I sent with my ATC's
I still have some for sale to let me know if your interested :)
Thanks for peaking at my desk
hugs Nikki
I'll pop around and visit asap :)
